Improve your Spey Casting with Simon Gawesworth

Course Details

Want to take your spey casting to the next level - this is a unique opportunity to learn from one of the greatest spey casting instructors of our time.  This will be the first time Simon has instructed in Ireland and we are pleased to have him instructing at Clonanav Fly Fishing.  The course will consist both classroom and casting time during the day.  This course is designed to suit experienced spey casters and not beginners.

About Simon

Simon Gawesworth’s impact and contribution to the world of fly fishing is legendary. His prolific career spans some 35 years. For those who have had a chance to learn from and fish with Simon, they will tell you that his humble, charming, and naturally delivered expertise is unmatched in the world of fly fishing. 

At the age of 8 years old, Simon’s father taught him to fly fish in his hometown of Kent, England. At 13 he moved to Devon, England and entered a fly-casting competition at the local fair, where he promptly won. This propelled Simon into the world of tournament casting and with his father’s tutelage he competed regularly around England from 1978 to 1985. Casting competitions eventually led to fishing competitions and then a lifetime of achievement in the sport ensued. 

In the early-1990’s, by invitation from Jim Vincent (RIO Products co-founder), Simon worked to develop RIO’s fly line offerings while also driving the brand direction for many years. His passion for casting, both single-hand and Spey, helped to drive RIO’s eventual dominance in fly line design. 

His love of teaching, his natural delivery and effortless ability to teach advanced fly casting concepts to both beginners and experts alike have influenced a generation of fly anglers. The sport has placed Simon on fisheries and teaching venues around the world and his vast experience now helps drive Far Bank’s educational and engagement initiatives. 

Simon is A.P.G.A.I. and S.T.A.N.I.C. certified in the U.K. and C.I., Master and T.H.C.I. certified in the U.S. through Fly Fishers International. In 2019 Simon was the recipient of the Lifetime Teaching Award by Fly Fishers International. 

Simon currently lives in the United Kingdom with his family.
